RVING BENEATH THE STARS: EXPLORING FLAGSTAFF’S INTERNATIONAL DARK SKY

April 9, 2024

Welcome to Flagstaff, where outdoor adventure meets celestial wonder! If you’re an avid stargazer and RV enthusiast, you’re in for a treat. Flagstaff, Arizona, renowned for its International Dark Sky designation, offers unparalleled opportunities to explore the cosmos while nestled in the beauty of nature. During your visit, consider setting up camp at Village Camp Flagstaff, a picturesque RV resort nestled in the Coconino National Forest, just 20 minutes away from the renowned Lowell Observatory.

STARGAZING IN FLAGSTAFF: A STELLAR EXPERIENCE


Flagstaff’s International Dark Sky City status makes it a haven for astronomy enthusiasts. From April to July, the skies over Flagstaff are exceptionally clear, making this period ideal for stargazing. Picture yourself under a blanket of stars, away from city lights, with only the sounds of nature surrounding you.

EXPLORING THE INTERNATIONAL DARK SKY

These locations offer unobstructed views of the stars and are perfect for setting up your telescope or simply lying back to marvel at the cosmos.

For a more guided experience, look into evening sky tours or astronomy programs offered by the Lowell Observatory. Located just west of downtown Flagstaff and only 20 minutes from Village Camp Flagstaff, the observatory hosts public programs that provide insights into the stars, planets, and galaxies above.
